So, let's see how this sale could work in my favor. Because I've saved my coupon inserts, I have six coupons for 50 cents off four cups of yogurt. I'm not limited to just buying four cups; I'll buy 24 today! 24 yogurt cups may seem like a lot to buy at one time, but in comparing the expiration dates with the amount of yogurt our household will likely consume over the next month, I know that our family of five will eat it long before it expires. I buy 4 cups of each flavor that I want, never exceeding the purchase limit of four for any of the flavors. And wait until you see what I pay.
With a 50-cent coupon for each four I buy, my yogurt now costs me just $3 for 24 cups, or just 12.5 cents each! That's a fantastic price for yogurt cups. By waiting to use my yogurt coupons until yogurt was deeply discounted, I saved even more.
I've mentioned this before, but the grocery stores in my neighborhood do not double coupons. But around the country, many stores do. Imagine if I were shopping in a store that doubled coupons! each 50-cent coupon would double to $1 in value and all the yogurt would be free. Now that's super-couponing!
